Aren't Canada and the United States very mediocre for travel and tourism?
There is nothing exciting about US/Canadian cities and towns.The architecture in these two countries are not impressive. The colonial buildings try to mimic the feel in being in Europe, but instead they turn out to be kitschy and theme park-like. Old Quebec City, Old Montreal, Frankenmuth, Solvang, Helen, etc. are perfect examples of this. It’ funny when people say the Quebec in the most European of North America, when the most European areas of North America are in Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Cities in Latin America are older and look very identical to that of Spain and Portugal.
The thing that US and Canada may have going for it are the natural beauty/scenic areas. But those tend to have a package fill to attractions there. There is often style with no substance, no layers. They also have nothing on scenic areas in other countries like Victoria Falls, Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve, Avenue of the Baobabs, Longsheng Rice Terraces, Sacred Valley, Monteverde etc..
Archaeological/ancient sites/ruins in the Canada/US are not impressive. Especially when compared to magnificent ones in other countries like Teotihuacan, Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, Colosseum, Parthenon, Machu Picchu, Timbuktu etc..
Other countries have a lot more to offer, especially without the American blandness. I genuinely feel sorry for Americans who feel content to just travel in their country.
Anyone else US/Canada to be extremely mediocre and two of the most overrated travel/tourist destination on the planet?
